Browns’ Tyrod Taylor Talks Trade from Bills

Published

During the rapid-fire offseason of the Cleveland Browns, they managed to get a brand new starting quarterback when they made a trade with the Buffalo Bills for signal caller Tyrod Taylor.

Taylor will serve as a bridge to rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield and recently spoke about his offseason, discussing his relationship with Bills head coach Sean McDermott in an interview with the Buffalo News’ Vic Carucci.

“Whether I was or whether I wasn’t [his guy], I’m not there anymore” Taylor said of McDermott.

“That’s his decision moving forward. I still feel that I’d done more than enough to stay where I was. But at the end of the day, they made a decision to move forward. And that’s their decision.”

Despite a roller coaster tenure with the Bills, Taylor looks back at his time in Buffalo fondly.

“It was special to be a part of a team last year that was able to break a 17-year (playoff) drought,”he said. “We didn’t finish the season the way we wanted to, but at the end of the day, we were able to change the culture. That was something that I set as a goal for the team. The main goal, to win a Super Bowl, wasn’t accomplished, but we were able to do some very special things in the three years that I was there and I have nothing to regret or to hang my head (about) in my time there. There’s nothing to be disappointed about.”

Jack certainly has been a leader with his performance and is coming off a solid 2018 season where he racked up 102 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 1 interception.

Jaguars’ Nick Foles Believes Leonard Fournette is Dual Threat

Published

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles is encouraged about what he has seen from running back Leonard Fournette in the passing game, believing that he can have a big season in 2019.

After a rough 2018 season, that included heavy criticism, Leonard could use some positive reinforcement, and Foles, his new quarterback, is giving him just that.

“That’s a threat,” Foles said,according to Jaguars.com. “If you ask any defender, when a running back can go out of the backfield and not only run the ball and protect, but he can receive, that’s really tough on a defense.

“I’ve been blessed to play with a lot of great running backs in my career that have made me look good because what they can do and there is nothing better than throwing the ball to a running back and letting him miss a guy. That’s what I love about backs. If you can catch, you can do so many different things. You can have a lot of fun out there.”
